At a time when international sanctions seem to be getting results, and the United States appears to be avoiding public discussion of a military strike in Iran, a rare and ominous statement was made on Tuesday by a senior American official on the active preparations being taken for an operation against the Islamic Republic.

During a closed meeting held yesterday in Tel Aviv, U.S. Ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro said that not only are all the options against Iran still on the table, but that above and beyond that, the United State has been working on getting the military option up and running, has actually completed the preparations for an attack, and has even tested them.

The closed meeting was being recorded by Ze’ev Kam of the daily “Makor Rishon.”

“It would have been better to solve it (the Iranian nuclear crisis) in a diplomatic way, by using pressure and without applying military force,” the ambassador clarified at the closed meeting, “But that does not mean that this option is not possible. Not only is it possible, it is ready. The necessary planning is in place to make sure it’s ready.”

Iranian Deputy foreign minister for Arab and African affairs Hossein Amir Abdollahian, expressed his hope today that next week’s nuclear talks between Iran and the sextet in Baghdad will be a step toward resolving the issue, and urging the West to continue negotiation in a realistic atmosphere.

    Why don't the Jews just come out and say that they want the world to end. Attacking Iran would be a disaster to say the least. Not that Iran is a tough cookie to crack but its friends are. Russia and China have financal interests in Iran worth billions. This could destroy the U.S. just by China not buying our debt. Or it could start WW3. All because Jews want to make sure they have ther biggest stick in Middle East. Now I'm not a big fan of Iran but they have allowed inspections of their nuclear centers and they signed the non-proliferation treaty but Israel won't do either. Its rather distrubing that in the U.S.A. our leaders are more concerned with what happens to Israel then doing what is right for our own country. Its time to look at America's problems not those 10,000 miles away.

    Rob Jackson, above, said: "Why don't the Jews just come out and say that they want the world to end." And that should end with a question mark, Rob. So, as a Jew, I shall address your comment and represent the reviled by you, and mythical, World Jewish Entity./// We Jews of the mythical, "WJE" don't "… just come out and say that they (we) want the world to end." because then we would sound kinda negative. Further, the millions of us mythical "WJE'ers" just don't get along perfectly well, nor do we see eye to eye on everything although many of us do agree that lox and eggs is tasty. Others among our mythical "WJE" just won't bite. And things get more complicated then that when it comes to admitting to you, the representative of the whole rest of the world outside of our secretive society of all the Jews in the world, that we just cannot agree on the matter you brought up. Turns out it could go either way at this point. Keep digging but if you do hear a loud noise, and it is the last thing you experience in this plane, then I guess we likely went negative on your butt and agreed among ourselves " that they (we) want the world to end."
